One of my favorite things about Chex is halfway through the cereal box, I love to make some Chex bars. Making bars out of cereal is a long standing family tradition that has been passed down from my parents to me, and their parents to them. It’s a fun way to spice things up and a delicious way to include Chex! We have all tasted and enjoyed the deliciousness that is known as Chex Party Mix, but a lot of the fun for our family is coming up with our own combinations to see how they taste.
Parents who have ever been stumped by a child’s tough Santa question, like “How does Santa get into houses without a fireplace?” or “How does Santa get around the whole world in one night?” will be relieved to know there’s a place where kids can get answers straight from the source.
A breakfast quiche is the perfect thing to make on a weekend or even in advance for a quick breakfast treat! The possibilities are endless when it comes to this treat so expand them and add in things you and your family love!

There is no easy way to bring it up, talk about it, or properly express the right emotions when dealing with cancer. It’s a tough thing to think about and most of us try not to think about it at all, if we don’t have to. Cancer is an intimidating word, and even tough to consider when your loved ones are involved. Cancer can be one of the scariest words in the human language, but fortunately, with proper treatment and a positive attitude, it doesn’t always have to be a scary word.
Thanks to fresh mint and lemon zest, this stuffing has plenty of vibrancy. For a quick flavor switch, try cilantro or basil instead of mint, and walnuts instead of pine nuts. Use a spoon to pack in the couscous; most of it will stay put as you saute the chicken, but any that falls out won’t burn.
The holiday season is one time of year that we actually take time to decorate our house accordingly. We venture into our garage, and start pulling out the boxes we have labeled as “fall “and “Christmas”. It makes me wonder why I always put the boxes on the bottom of the pile, instead of where I can easily access them, but that is part of the seasonal tradition as well. Hearing boxes falling and me groaning in the garage is a sure fire way to know the season is upon us.
Give an ordinary woven basket a facelift with paint. It’s an easy project that lets you organize craft supplies or other odds and ends in style.
While visiting Santa this past weekend, my daughter asked one of the elves if they had heard of her elf (on the shelf) named Toodles.
If your husband is anything like mine, they either want “nothing” for Christmas or already have it all. I know how tough it can be doing Christmas shopping for someone like that. Why not give them something they can actually use and would enjoy. Whether your man has a gym in the garage, or spends time at their favorite fitness club just having the time to go to the gym is sometimes Christmas present enough.
The holidays aren’t always as sweet as they could be. Home safety and security frequently bubble up as big concerns, according to a new Allstate claims report that reveals an average of 67,500 homeowners insurance claims take place during the holiday season.
